Lol anypony else ever consider this site has a DASHboard? :D


Prairie Fire is a young artist pony who lived in Ponyville a few years before the MLP plot started up, and somehow entangled himself in the lives of several of the mane six. What will Twilight think when Applejack and Rarity describe the long-gone colt? And what will they learn from his actions? More importantly, what will -Applejack- learn about friendship and responsibility, and what it means to be a family?

Interesting, I enjoyed these two chapters and I look forward to reading more.:pinkiehappy:

Very interested in this!! On an Ipod so I cant type much, but consider me tracking!

OHMIGOSH OHMIGOSH OHMIGOSH! :rainbowkiss: I didn't think anypony would be interested! <3 All my love for this story has been DOUBLED!

The next chapter should be up pretty soon. ;) I've already written nearly the entire story, it just needs some editing and revision.

Aw. Poor guy. Anyway, I look forward to more.:pinkiehappy:

Let's see where this goes. I hope Applejack finds it in herself to forgive him, as well what kind of relationship he would have with Big Mac if he even wants to even start to repair things up.


Very good, I look forward to more.:pinkiehappy:

Ooooh. I look forward to seeing where this is going.:pinkiehappy:

>>Chill mists(Chilly)Thanks for the loyalty! I still have a lot in store, so I hopefully you won't be disappointed. :raritywink:

:(, that last lines of this chapter. Hope he doesn't still chicken out.

364272 Thanks! Hey, in the previous chapters, were the flashbacks and time jumps easy to keep up with? This is the first time I've written a story with so much going on that's out of order, and I was hoping you could tell me if it's too chaotic or not?

Excited for more, Prarie reminds me of myself


I'm glad, a relatable character is always a good thing for a writer to hear. :)

379827 I didn't find it chaotic at all, I thought it was easy to tell if it was the past or present.:pinkiesmile:

Now, the hunt for Prairie begins!


Yep, he better look out, there's no stopping a crazy mare once she's got her mind set on something :raritywink:

I think I'm getting better with this narrative, and I'm excited about finishing it. I've almost gotten the entire thing written. :D Tell me your thoughts, purdy pleeze!

The plot is going very well, I only worry what happens when Applejack/Twilight/Rarity does find him again in Caterlot in his gallery or wherever he is.

Twilight, finally realizing that he was front of her the whole time during their conversation with Celestia ha.

Very excited for more, though i honestly thought that Prarie wouldnt be in good shape when they found him. Guess hes doin pretty good though, all chummy with the princess:unsuresweetie:

I wonder how Applejack will react to finding him. Will she be angry like she said she would?

It's been a great ride, everypony, and thank you to those who stuck with me the whole time! I've got a few ideas in the works, now it's just time to figure out which one to run with next!

And please, tell me what you think about the story as a whole, and the ending.

I loved this. Thank You:twilightsmile:

You're quite welcome! :trollestia: Thanks for sticking with the story!

I enjoyed reading this, well done.:pinkiehappy:


Thanks! I'm glad my first pony fic wasn't a total bust. :twilightblush:

Eventually, I'll be writing a sequel to this, describing Cherry's life and how he met Prairie Fire. Before then, however, I have some concepts I'd like to explore. But this story still has more to be told!

Thanks for everything, ladies and gentlecolts. :pinkiehappy:

Love how those colts shat and run out before Applejack would have her hoofs on them.

you're right "Normal" and "Pinkie" don't belong in the same sentence or together at all

I was expecting this kind of ending, both him alive or dead ending there would be paintings of the apple family, Still i enjoyed the story :P


Thanks, I'm glad you enjoyed it. :scootangel:

Prairie Fire is the most amazing Blank flank ever! :rainbowlaugh:

This story deserves more credit than what it has been given. Having just discovered this fic about 8 months after its completion I have to say I'm disappointed that this masterpiece only has 10 thumbs. I wish to write like this, but I don't have much time to practise. One of my very favourite favourites. I urge you to listen to the song "Porcelain" by The Red Hot Chili Peppers while reading the final chapter. Although the lyrics are irrelevant, the song just seems to fit the exact mood of the scene. Thank you very much for a fantastic experience and I hope to read more of your work.


Heh, he's not actually a blank flank, I just couldn't figure out how to put a cutie mark on the picture. :twilightsheepish: I never really talked about his cutie mark, though, did I? (Has forgotten.)


Thanks, but it's definitely not a masterpiece. I have much to learn!

1889605 Thats what confused me.. sorry, just thought I would put a stupid pun there. :ajsleepy: i feel bad now


i freaking agree with him...you created a great character from childhood to maturity with many problems and changes in his life...also you narrated all of the mane six perfectly (in my opinion on how they act).

Great job, great story and many thumbs for you :twilightsmile:

Simply wonderful, no words can describe how heart felt this was, heartfelt enough to keep me up the whole night, getting no sleep, with important tests tomorrow in two hours, but, worth it, simply amazing!

Um, I'm real shit at writing reviews, but I really wanted to let you know that I really enjoyed this fic. A lot.

This is the first 'OC in Ponyville' story I've read in a really, really, really long time that I honestly enjoyed from the get go to the let go. I could rant and rave about all the cliche's you avoided and how you did everything 'right' when lots of other people do them 'wrong' but I'll bite my tongue when it comes to that kind of stuff. The characters (The non-OC ones) all felt very in character and I really liked the character of Prairie Fire. He didn't feel anywhere near as hopelessly despondent and suicidally depressed like a lot of OC characters tend to be, and he also wasn't Cocaine Happy or Fonzie Over Confident. He felt real.

My only complaint, and please don't take this as anything more than constructive criticism that you don't neccesarily have to agree with, is that you'd brought Cherry Bomb into the story either earlier, or spent more time on their relationship. I mean, it was nice to see them happy in the end but he kind of pops up out of nowhere with like a half a paragraph of "And then he met Cherry Bomb and he was happy" to describe it. Again, I'm not trying to sound like an asshole, I just thought since he ended up being Prairie Fire's 'Special Somepony' he could have used a little more attention and focus. (Well, that and I'm a sucker for Cute M/M couples.)

All in all, this is a really great story and I'm glad it's got such a big fan base (Lot's of OC stuff, and especially OC and M/M stuff gets sorta brushed over I find.) I'm not sure if it's like 'done' done, or if you're planning on a sequel but I'd happily read more adventures of Prairie Fire and Cherry Bomb.


Thanks! I have no idea where this sudden attention came from; Back when I was writing this, it had two followers and one that snuck up one me as the story finished. I have a lot of personal criticisms for the story but I'm glad that, for the most part, some people have enjoyed my story. And I'm really glad you guys think I wrote the cannon characters in-character; It's always tricky to write a character you didn't create.

And yeah, as for Cherry Bomb... I actually planned to write a sort-of sequel about Cherry's life, and write their whole love story though it in Cherry's POV, but I haven't been writing a lot of fanfiction recently. Still, if I do, I look forward to your support. :pinkiehappy:

"Can I draw you naked?"

But... they are already naked... I don't understand why this question has such impact here. It's only awkward phrasing, like asking a human if you may take pictures of them with their clothes on.


Hehe, yeaaaaah...

I didn't think that one through a lot, I'm not going to lie. I'm really way past this story now, though, so I probably won't rewrite it. I mean, honestly, that whole thing there is ridiculous and I don't even like the stereotyping I forced little AJ into for the sake of the story. Altogether this is more of my embarrassing past than anything, which is sad considering in the grand scheme of things it's not that long ago.

This story deserves more admiration than anybody could give i wish i could forget it so i could read it with new appreciating eyes than before, thank you for making something so wonderful to read.
